collect user input from a form and store it into a file

franable Hello,  I purchased your ebook compiler 2 weeks ago an have found it to be a great product!
I have been working with "collect user input from a form and store it into a file" as found on this pagehttp://www.ebookcode.com/scripts/form1.htm
It works good but I would like to do more with it.  How can I use this example so the ebook html form looks exactly the same but when you save it as a .txt you can have headings directly above the user input?

example of created .txt document:
Joe Blow
Address 1
11 Maple Street
Address 2
23 Brown Street  

instead of .txt file looking like this:
Joe Blow
11 Maple Street
23 Brown Street  

I have tried using hidden fields on the web page reading your help an other numerous ideas.

This is possible, right?

If you can lead me in the right direction I would appreciate it.

JohnDodson Jimmy,
Your correct.  Put a hidden field above the users field and put the value in before you save and compile.

<input type="hidden" name="name1" value="Name is:">
<input type="text" name="name" value="">

Then on the script file:
In the form retrieval part put this:

In the long string part put this:

That will give you the result your after.
